    Rain, rain, go away. I just want to golf at Sugarloaf.
    Well, the rain didn't stop us from playing. There was a slight drizzle throughout our round but I'd take these weather conditions and play in wet weather ahead of many other courses.
    I had a brutal front nine and I can come up with a million excuses as to why but none have to do with the course. The beautiful scenery throughout Sugarloaf softened my discouraging round.
    Many greens have slick contours and knowing the pin placements will definitely affect your score. A good mixture of green sizes, then throw in a tier or two, and you've got one tough putting surface.
    The front nine is spectacular but you haven't seen anything yet. The back nine definitely out does the front.
    The four par 5s are near impossible to reach in two as a couple have double bends. If not, it may be pure length.
    The back nine starts with a short elevated par 4 that I felt I could reach with my driver. I pushed my tee shot right, but I was encouraged to try another by my playing partner. My second tee shot landed 3 feet behind the pin for an uncountable eagle.
    Hole #11 once again heads up to an elevated tee for a difficult par 3. Bring your camera!
    Holes #14 and #15 are protected by a rock infested river bed that will show how much a golf ball can bounce if you land in this hazard.
    The four tee boxes offer a different strategy and view at each hole. There's something here for everyone.
    I could go on and on about how great the course is. No wonder Sugarloaf has been rated the Top Course in Maine 26 years.
